The Information Awareness Office (IAO) was established by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) in January 2002 to bring together several DARPA projects focused on applying surveillance and information technology to track and monitor terrorists and other asymmetric threats to U.S. national security, by achieving "Total Information Awareness" (TIA).[4][5][6] This was achieved by creating enormous computer databases to gather and store the personal information of everyone in the United States, including personal e-mails, social networks, credit card records, phone calls, medical records, and numerous other sources, without any requirement for a search warrant.[7] This information was then analyzed to look for suspicious activities, connections between individuals, and "threats".[8] Additionally, the program included funding for biometric surveillance technologies that could identify and track individuals using surveillance cameras, and other methods.[8] History[edit]

SecTools.Org: Top 125 Network Security Tools For more than a decade, the Nmap Project has been cataloguing the network security community's favorite tools.

In 2011 this site became much more dynamic, offering ratings, reviews, searching, sorting, and a new tool suggestion form. This site allows open source and commercial tools on any platform, except those tools that we maintain (such as the Nmap Security Scanner, Ncat network connector, and Nping packet manipulator).

We're very impressed by the collective smarts of the security community and we highly recommend reading the whole list and investigating any tools you are unfamiliar with. Click any tool name for more details on that particular application, including the chance to read (and write) reviews. Many site elements are explained by tool tips if you hover your mouse over them.

They give us the ability to easily deploy a complex network of computers without the need to physically wire them up. However, this ease of use can also mean that, without proper precautions, neighbourhood parasites can leech bandwidth and generally use your network against your wishes.

Trapping such people is easy with a little thought and some borrowed equipment. What is wireless? What's usually known as Wi-Fi belongs to a family of wireless networking technologies called IEE 802.11. These all use the same protocol for transmitting and receiving data over short distances. Home wireless routers and hubs (commonly called wireless access points) conform to the 802.11g variant of the specification. However, the useful data transmission rate is more like 19 Mbps, with the rest of the available bandwidth being used for error correction, encryption and packet collision detection. Wireless LANs operate on one of 13 channels. Encrypt to survive. Programr: Code, Compile & Run Programs In Your Browser. [www]~> TrackMeNot Prevents Data Profiling By Search Engines [Extension] How happy are you about search engines keeping tabs on your browsing behavior? Even though they say it’s to provide a better service and that they’ll take your information to the grave but never share it with anyone, it is nevertheless a fact that they know what you do online, how you do and when you do it.

So if you’re not in the sharing mood and you don’t want to reveal too much abut your browsing patterns try TrackMeNot extension for Firefox and Chrome which will send rouge queries from your browser to different search engines and make your pattern difficult for them to decipher. The extension comes preloaded with a whole bunch of queries like google,android,honda,data,ios lodsys android etc.

Secure Firefox And Internet Explorer Browsing With G Data CloudSecurity. If your PC gets infected with malwares, spywares, and phishing scripts even in the presence of configured anti-virus internet security components, you should deploy an additional security layer for your web browsers to ensure system stability.

Since it’s not recommended to install more than one anti-malware software to protect system from malware, spyware, and phishing infested codes, you must use a dedicated security tool which looks for viruses, malwares, spywares, and security related vulnerabilities found in web pages. Similar to previously featured – TrafficeLight, G Data CloudSecurity is another web security tool which integrates into Firefox and Internet Explorer to protect you from malicious scripts. Before going into details. it’s worth mentioning here that it doesn’t erupt any sort of virus detection conflicts with other installed anti-virus suites nor does it disable any web-security functions of anti-phishing / anti-malware components of anti-virus.

Hacking Knowledge: 77 Ways to Learn Faster, Deeper, and Better. If someone granted you one wish, what do you imagine you would want out of life that you haven’t gotten yet? For many people, it would be self-improvement and knowledge. Newcounter knowledge is the backbone of society’s progress. Great thinkers such as Leonardo da Vinci, Thomas Edison, Benjamin Franklin, Albert Einstein, and others’ quests for knowledge have led society to many of the marvels we enjoy today. Your quest for knowledge doesn’t have to be as Earth-changing as Einstein’s, but it can be an important part of your life, leading to a new job, better pay, a new hobby, or simply knowledge for knowledge’s sake — whatever is important to you as an end goal.

Life-changing knowledge does typically require advanced learning techniques. In fact, it’s been said that the average adult only uses 10% of his/her brain. Health Shake a leg. Balance Sleep on it.

InfoSec Institute – IT Training and Information Security Resources. How to be a better spy: Cyber security lessons from the recent russian spy arrests. On Monday, a number of Russian nationals got arrested for espionage against the US [1]. With all the talk and attention paid to cyber spies, spear phishing, APT and new high tech satellites and drones, it is almost refreshing to see that good old fashioned human spies are still used and apparently found valuable.

Skynet hasn't taken over quite yet. However, the story has a few neat cyber security lessons. Lesson 1: Encrypt your Wifi The spies evidently used WiFi networks to communicate. However, instead of all of them to connect to a particular access point, they established Ad-Hoc networks. This idea is interesting in so far as it does make remote surveillance of the connection a bit harder. As a "sub lesson" one may take away that you should change your MAC address as a spy to avoid tracking. One neat side effect of this meeting method: The participants of the meeting never had to acknowledge each other visibly. Lesson 2: Keep your password secure Lesson 3: Obscurity ! ------ Johannes B.
